This shirt. I mean. Seriously. It’s just perfect. I originally chose it from Oasap because my husband liked it and I’m bad with decisions, what being pregnant and all, but when it arrived, I fell in love! The print is adorable, and the edges are so delicately scalloped, and it’s the perfect light material for summer. I can’t wait to wear it more!

IMG_2400 I got all adventurous while photographing this outfit, and decided to use the brick wall at a local school.

Yes, that is adventurous for me. Me, who until recently never took pictures outside of her property. Y’know. I met the janitor, who asked if I was getting good pictures.

It’s surprising to me that so far, I haven’t been approached with anyone curious to know why I’m taking pictures of myself. People have only asked whether I’m getting good ones, have been impressed that I take them myself, and have asked whether I’m a photographer. Which is fine with me, I feel awkward explaining it’s for a fashion blog.

IMG_2404 Speaking of photography, though, I WILL be able to say yes, I am a photographer. I started up that Facebook Page for Storybook Photography, and I have plenty of volunteer models to help me get started and get a little portfolio going! I’m so excited to get started. My first shoot is on Thursday. It’s going to be so much fun to figure out how everything will work (what works and what doesn’t…), and practice getting more interesting shots than I take of myself.

By the way, if any of you ladies are pregnant/have been pregnant and know good places to find cute, retro-inspired (and affordable) maternity swimsuits, please let me know! I’m looking for a two-piece tankini-like swimsuit, because let me tell you: one pieces and my hips are not friends. So far, I haven’t found anything better than this one from Kohl’s.

I really want a red one.

Have a beautiful Tuesday!

      1. I know. I plan to over-wear it this summer. And fall, too. And just… y’know… year round…
      2. Aw, thanks!

      3. I’ve got my fingers crossed! And I’m pretty excited to get started.
      4. (There wasn’t a four, I just like making lists…)

    Love the belly shot! Also, your hair looks gorgeous in that last photo. (It’s really grown out since the pixie cut awhile back!)

    • Eccentric Owl

      Thank you! Haha, it took SO many shots for me to get that one right. Practice makes perfect, I guess!
      Hasn’t it? I’m so excited that it’s finally starting to be long again! I don’t think I’ll ever drastically cut my hair again. I’ll stick to dyeing it crazy colors. 😀 Hehe.

    I want that top. Also, is it weird that my first reaction to this outfit is that you look like a mermaid? I mean, with the seahorse shirt, that amazing blue skirt, and your gorgeous hair…

    • Eccentric Owl

      No! It’s not weird at all! This skirt majorly reminds me of a mermaid (hence, its name in my shop– water maiden skirt) so I figured I’d go with the whole sea thing.
      Thank you! I’m super excited about my hair finally being longer again! I think I’ll keep it long for a very, very long time.

      This outfit reminded me of you, actually! I think it’s the pattern mixing and the skirt, especially. Hehe.
      Isn’t it? I never know what to say or do. I usually just stand there fiddling with my camera pretending to review pictures or fix the focus until they leave. 😀
      I will!
